Just brought it home!

I finally picked up our new Cruise Lite 273QBXL today. Five hours from Nashville to Cincinnati and then a long, I don't want to talk about, seven hour drive home... (Rush hour and a bit of nerves driving the new unit)

I help setup my WDH at the dealer and they even replaced some fuses on my TV that had been blown for the pigtail connection. Great experience picking up the trailer. Of course it rained while we were trying to do the PDI. But I did get to see there weren't any leaks.

I will post up some pictures tomorrow. Been and exhausting day!

It's a new to me 2000 Ford F-250 with the V10 in it. I got about 10 mpg on the way back pulling the trailer. A little better than what I thought! Haha.

Thank you guys for the replies. I spent the afternoon loading some things in and demonstrating to the wife how things work. With two young ones, the bunkhouse is going to be great.

Still need to get a picture posted up!

Yes it is but my local RV dealers couldn't touch the pricing. 370 miles and I saved $4200.00 over my in town dealer and $3000.00 over the surrounding area!

The pricing on these things is insane. I went looking for a used camper and ended up buying a new one because it was so cheap.
